The file you want to download is the one that says BIOS, it will be the 4th file down that you want. Download it and run it from windows, it will update your BIOS and may take a while. Once it tells you its complete, reboot the computer and try going into the BIOS then and see what happens. Should take care of the problem as long as the BIOS wasn't completely corrupted.
